Synopsis:
On the darkest moon of Mars, scientists have found an ancient portal which allows teleportation throughout the universe.

 •  Cannes Breakout VIVARIUM Coming to US [Clip]
Writer/director Lorcan Finnegan's sophomore effort Vivarium garnered quite a bit of buzz at its Cannes Critic's Week premiere and now the film that impressed critics and audiences alike will be seen by North American audiences care of Saban Films which has picked up US rights to the sci-fi thriller.


Vivarium stars Imogen Poots and Jesse Eisenberg as a young couple in search of the perfect starter home. The pair end up in Vavarium, a housing development being sold as something completely different from other residential subdivisions. Needless to say, different isn't always good as the pair find themselves trapped there.

 •  Gas Station Heist Gets Explosive in BURN [Trailer]
It's very likely that at some point in your life, you've worked a job you didn't like or perhaps even downright hated. Most of us endure until we can get out or are forced out but sometimes, things get ugly. The latter seems to be the case in Burn.


Melinda (Tilda Cobham-Hervey) and Sheila (Suki Waterhouse) work at a gas station. Sheila is the more personable of the two while Melinda is quiet and a bit of an oddity. Most nights are pretty boring but on the night in which Burn unfolds, things get downright strange. Billy (Josh Hutcherson) tries to rob the place but he botches the job and ends up a hostage to Melinda who turns out to be just a tad more than "strange" and before you know it, the entire station is going up in flames.


Writer/director Mike Gan [Continued ...]
 
 •  Fantasia 2019 Now in Full Swing!
The 2019 edition of the Fantasia International Film Festival kicked off in Montreal on July 11 and until August 1, the city will play home to a wide assortment of films; from festival favourites to new discoveries which are likely to burn up the genre festival circuit for the remainder of the year.


While this year's Cheval Noir competition includes already buzz-worthy titles such as Sergio Casci and Veronika Franz's The Lodge (trailer) and Carlo Mirabella-Davis' Swallow, the competition also features Brett and Drew Pierce's new take on witchcraft films The Wretched as well as Adolfo Borinaga Alix Jr.'s period horror Mystery of the Night among others.

 •  EIFF 2019: Review of WE HAVE ALWAYS LIVED IN THE CASTLE
An adaptation of the Shirley Jackson novel, We Have Always Lived in the Castle is a self-consciously quirky, Burton-esque dark comedy about a family of misfits living in 1960s New England. Sticking to the basic structure of its source novel, the film follows the trials of the eccentric Blackwood family as they cope with their outsider status and the intrusive meddling of a visiting cousin.


Directed by Stacie Passon, written by Mark Kruger, the film falls somewhere between a thriller and a comedy with a cool sense of irony lingering over events. Following a scandal involving the poisoning of their parents, sisters Merricat (Taissa Farmiga) and Constance (Alexandra Daddario) live with their Uncle Julian (Crispin Glover) in their secluded estate. Cut off from the world, they are o [Continued ...]
 
 •  EIFF 2019: Review of THE VAST OF NIGHT
Director Andrew Patterson's startling debut feature is an homage to old Twilight Zone episodes, set over the course of one night in a sleepy New Mexico town in the 1950s. Jake Horrowitz plays Everett, a confident and articulate high schooler who works part time as a local radio DJ, and Sierra McCormick plays his neurotic friend and classmate Fay, who works as a telephone operator. When Fay hears a strange noise broadcast on the radio and over the phone wires, she contacts Everett and the two teens investigate.


Films like The Vast of Night are the reason I do this gig. Every so often you discover a film that genuinely takes you somewhere new, a film in which all the components click perfectly into place and about which you wouldn't change a frame. From its opening scene, an unbr [Continued ...]

 •  EIFF 2019: Review of BODY AT BRIGHTON ROCK
Writer-director Roxanne Benjamin's feature debut is a curiously inert horror-thriller about a young park ranger named Wendy (Karina Fontes), who, during her rounds of the trails one afternoon, discovers the corpse of a male hiker. Upon radioing her supervisor she is ordered to remain overnight at what may be a crime scene, to ensure the body is not disturbed. I have no idea what exactly this film wants to be, and I'm not convinced that it knows either.


We're introduced to Wendy as she's running late for her morning briefing and receives a stern telling-off from her boss. Determined to prove herself, she accepts the job of walking the rough trail and securing warning signs for hikers. Her colleagues scoff at this, certain that she is too inexperienced for such a task. When she discover [Continued ...]
 
 •  EIFF 2019: Review of THEM THAT FOLLOW
Slightly stodgy drama/thriller from co-writer-directors Britt Poulton and Dan Madison Savage, concerning hysterical snake-handling Pentecostal Christians in Appalachia, the main draw being the presence of recent Oscar winner Olivia Colman. Alice Allegra Englert plays Mara, a young woman torn between loyalty to her bonkers pastor father (Walton Goggins) and love for her former beau, Augie (Thomas Mann), a non-believer. Colman plays Augie's mother, a local busybody, and although top-billed, essentially provides a supporting role.

The film ploughs a fairly well-worn furrow, that of the innocent caught between religion and reason. Mara is emotionally blackmailed into marrying a local believer named Garret (Lewis Pullman), a 'good man' whose intentions seem noble, but mask deep insecurities. [Continued ...]
 
 •  EIFF 2019: Review of THE WIND
Feature debut from director Emma Tammi and writer Teresa Sutherland, The Wind is a period horror set in the Western frontier of late 1800s America. Lizzie (Caitlin Gerard) and her husband Isaac (Ashley Zukerman) are a married couple eking out a frugal life on the plains when another couple move into the abandoned farm nearby. Emma (Julia Goldani Telles) and Gideon (Dylan McTee) are city folk attempting to start a new life - hopelessly unprepared, they begin to rely on Lizzie and her husband for support. This intrusion deepens the already troubled Lizzie's state of mind; she believes the area to be haunted by a 'prairie demon', a malicious spirit which travels on the wind.

The Wind has been favourably compared to [Continued ...]
 
 •  EIFF 2019: Review of Folk Horror GWEN
Writer-director William McGregor's atmospheric folk-horror Gwen, tells the story of a family living in 19th Century rural Wales. Eldest daughter Gwen (Eleanor Worthington-Cox) lives with her mother and younger sister, and struggles to hold the family together since her father left for war - A task made increasingly difficult when she begins to suspect the moors surrounding their tiny, isolated farm may be haunted by a demon.


If there's one thing which works superbly well in Gwen it's the location. Snowdonia itself is a character in the film, its harsh, misty, mountainous terrain reflecting the hardship faced by this little family - McGregor's camera really feels as though it captures the essence of this place and time.


The rest of the film is something of a mixed ba [Continued ...]
 
 •  EIFF 2019: Review of STRANGE BUT TRUE
A neo-noir-thriller ensemble piece, Strange But True lands with a bit of a thud. It's a yarn about a young pregnant woman, Melissa (Margaret Qualley), who contacts her former boyfriend's family five years following his unexpected and untimely death, proclaiming that the child she's carrying must be his, as he was the only man with whom she'd ever had sex. The family - mother, father and brother - have since become fractured, attempting to cope with the boy's death in their own respective ways. They are understandably shaken by this impossible claim, and try to solve the mystery.


Melissa lives next-door to the world's sweetest old couple (Brian Cox and Blythe Danner) and, with their help, she prepares for the birth in her tiny cottage with the absolute conviction that the father [Continued ...]
 
 •  EIFF 2019: Review of Emily Harris' CARMILLA
It is better, I suppose, to see someone fail at doing something interesting than to see someone succeed in doing something dull. Carmilla, written and directed by Emily Harris, is a flawed film, but it's a pretty noble failure.


The story, a Gothic horror based on the 1872 novella by Sheridan Le Fanu, concerns a lonely teenage girl named Lara (Hannah Rae), who shares a country estate with her father and her cruel governess, Miss Fontaine (Jessica Raine - The Woman in Black). When we are introduced to Lara, she is having her left hand bound behind her back to encourage her to use her right - the left hand being connected to the devil and witchcraft. This is the first sign of just how stifling and restrictive life in her deeply Christian household can be.


An accident o [Continued ...]
 
 •  EIFF 2019: Review of German Zombie Film EVER AFTER
A title card informs us that, following a worldwide zombie epidemic, only two cities in Germany remain. In Weimar, the infected are killed on sight, while in Jena, a cure is sought. Teenage survivor Vivi has been sheltering in a mental hospital in the beleaguered Weimar for two years, and has decided to volunteer helping to maintain the city wall - but finds coping with regular zombie attacks traumatising, and so leaves for the safe haven of Jena. Her journey brings her into contact with the tough, no-nonsense Eva, and together they make their way through the countryside, facing off against occasional zombies of the sprinting variety.

A quick check of the RT score vs the IMDb rating and it seems Ever After might be one of those films that critics love but audiences don't. It is a [Continued ...]
 
 •  Indie Crime Thriller NO BLOOD OF MINE Lands June 28 [Trailer]

 •  Release of the Week: ROBOWAR Limited Edition from Severin Films
A year before their jaw-dropper Shocking Dark, director Bruno Mattei (Violence in a Women's Prison) and co-writers Claudio Fragasso & Rossella Drudi (ZOMBIE 4) first collaborated on the brain-melting mash-up of Predator, Robocop and a Philippines war movie that is... Robowar!


When a team of badass commandos is hired for a jungle rescue mission, they'll instead find themselves hunted by a kill-crazed creature that is part man, part machine and all glorious '80s ItaloSleaze.

Reb Brown (UNCOMMON VALOR), Catherine Hickland (ONE LIFE TO LIVE), Massimo Vanni (RATS: [Continued ...]
 
 •  EIFF 2019: DARLIN' Review
The sequel to Lucky McKee's 2011 film The Woman, (itself a sequel to 2009's Offspring) sees Pollyanna McIntosh returning to the role of The Woman, as well as taking up directing and writing duties. The films are based on a series of Jack Ketchum novels about a clan of violent feral cannibals who roam the northeast coast of America, clashing with so-called 'civilised' people - and often exposing them as the real monsters. Darlin' tries to capture some of the grim satire and feminist rage of McKee's film, but ultimately fails to live up to this promise.


In The Woman, McIntosh's eponymous cannibal was captured by an all-American family and chained up in their barn. It didn't end well for them. Now, it's eight years later, and we find McIntosh and her teenage ' [Continued ...]
